Batwoman news: Interviews + a new big villain

Season 2 of Batwoman is only DAYS away as it starts THIS SUNDAY, January 17 at the CW at 8pm.

After no fresh episodes since May I’m more than hyped! 🙂

A lot of articles and news surfaced the last days and on this post I wanna collect all the new info prior to episode 1.

Safiyah is one of the big villains in season 2, we know that for quite a while now. She was already mentioned a few times in season 1 and has some connections to Alice and Kate(?).

Shivaani Ghai was casted for that role.

Now we get some first look images + an interesting text on EW:

Meet Batwoman season 2 big bad Safiyah in new first look

Now we got news that infamous villain Black Mask also joins the villains of season 2 on the show!

No info on the actor who will play him are out yet….but damn, that’s great news! I always liked his role in the comics and his appearance was one of the plus points of the Birds of Prey movie.

More on that on the EW as well:

Batwoman boss confirms Black Mask is season 2’s other big bad

….with some major news….there are already some news to post before!

Safiyah has been casted for the show!

In the show it seems that Alice is her main enemy. In the comics Kate Kane/Batwoman has a complicated relationsship with her…but as Kate isn’t around anymore (at least for a while until she comes back 😉 ) it seems that Alice will have to face her. Safiyah was already mentioned on some occasions in season 1, will be interesting to see what her goal is in the TV show.

I don’t know the actress so far, but I am looking forward to see her on screen.

One week has passed since they had started shooting season 2.

And of course some pictures show up on social media.

Here are my two favorites from the last days:

Alice is back in action! 🙂

Meagan Tandy has posted this picture:

I wonder how her role will change in season 2….

On sunday I will make a big post about season 2 of Batwoman as there should be some juicy news to post about from saturday 😉
